Hi All,

Saw some posts from 2013 about kids and their heights at time of getting period. Wondering in 2017 what height your daughters ended up at? After starting their period, how much more did they grow?

I'm in a similar case right now, daughter who is almost 10 got her period and is 4'11". Worried about how much taller she will be, hoping she reaches 5'4" (docs are saying 5'2" or 5'3").

Thanks!

Wow, what a shame, only 9yo. But 4'11" is very tall for 9yo, too.

I think I grew about 4" after I got first period. So 5'3" sounds plausible. I wonder if the younger they start the more they can still grow -- I was 12yo.
